Van Rensselaer Village

Scope of Project:
The project included complete reconstruction of the 1972 apartment complex. Through selective demolition and some new construction, the number of apartments was reduced from 100 to 80, in 17 separate buildings, allowing for lower density site use, higher visibility and security which, resulted in a dramatically improved quality of life for the occupants.

Engineering services included placing high efficiency gas fired furnaces with direct expansion central air conditioning in each apartment. A new electrical distribution system design was designed along with individually metered interior power distribution system.

A new security system was designed with exterior cameras, sensors and site lighting to improve the security and safety of the occupants.

Each apartment was designed with new water conservation plumbing fixtures and was sprinklered to NFPA 13R.
